Allandale Dining, Entertainment, and Shopping


This month, we’re spotlighting the Allandale Neighborhood of Austin, Texas.  This week, we’ll be taking a look at the dining, entertainment, and shopping options in the North Austin neighborhood.

Fonda San Miguel on North Loop is famous for its brunch and other tasty high-end Mexican dishes, as well as its romantic, low-lit interior.  You might want to save up for your trip, though, this is high end Mexican food with the price tag to match.

Another Austin institution is Top Notch on Burnet Road.  This unique burger joint has been serving up straight forward delicious fries, onion rings and, of course, hamburgers since 1971.  

If movies are more your speed, Alamo Drafthouse's Village location on Anderson Lane is a great place to catch a new release while sipping a brew and eating.  They also have all sorts of fun special events like Sing-alongs and remounts of your favorite childhood flicks.

Want to shop til you drop?  Allandale is home to a plethora of unique, locally owned shops like Sandy's Shoes on Anderson.  Sandy's Shoes is THE place to get kids shoes and are well-known locally for their sales people's almost magical ability to get kids to sit still while their feet are measured and put into a new pair of kicks.  Plus, mom can snag a pair for herself as well!

Dragon's Lair Comics and Fantasy on Burnet is THE place to geek out and find everything from rare comic books to the 12-sided die that will make you the envy of all your friends at D&D night.
